Water Filter Project

Fund $35 per Filter

Cambodia is not a water scarce country. In general people can find water from pond or river near their home. Every year hundreds of Cambodian people, mainly children under the age of five years old, died from diarrhea and other diseases which are caused by drinking unsafe water from the pond and river.

Our solution is the household bio-sand filter. The filter is made using locally available materials. Dirty water is poured into the top of the filter, flowing through the bio-layer, sand and rock; that all work together using natural processes to remove protozoa, bacteria, and worms. When the water pours out the spout the majority of contaminants are removed therefore improving the taste and appearance of water, and contributing towards improving health. We think that’s a pretty good idea.

   

Each family also attends training on safe water storage, plus each family contributes $5 for their own filter as a means of demonstrating ownership. We visit every home at two months after installation, this helps to ensure that people are getting the maximum benefit from the filter. Our monitoring has found that over 95% of the people are continuing to use the filter.

We have provided 200 filters to poor families in Chikreng district of Siem Reap province. Each filter will supply water for a family, on average 6 people. Our goal is to provide 800 filters to the rural families by 2020 to 2021.

Thank you for your support to improve access to safe drinking water!
